You thought you got rid of them but you stepped outside and saw three more burrows spread out across your lawn. Not to mention, you just replanted your garden and the roots and leaves of your plants have already been chewed up. Moles and voles are a lawn's worst enemy because of the sheer havoc they're able to wreak on lawns. They may be hidden, but we have the solutions to make them come out and never want to enter your lawn again!
Our treatment options suit every client's comfort level. If you would like a mild or less invasive treatment, we can perform an environmental modification service on your lawn.

Although they are very similar, it's important to know the difference between moles and voles so that you can understand how each treatment works. The best way to determine whether you're dealing with a mole or vole is to see whether the rodent has ears or not. Moles don't have visible ears and mostly feed on worms, bugs, and insects.
Voles on the other hand resemble mice and prefer to eat plants, garden vegetation, and roots. Both cause distressing damage to your property, either underground or in your garden. We offer solutions that will repel both moles and voles from your lawn.
Moles and voles are most active in the spring because their food sources are more readily available in the warmer months. We offer treatments in early spring to prevent these rodents from damaging your lawn.
Trenching: To protect vegetable gardens, our team can create a barrier by constructing a deep trench around the perimeter of the garden to make it difficult for these rodents to reach your plants. We can also install wire mesh fencing around it for extra protection.
Raised Planter Beds: We can install raised planter beds on your property to our your landscape and garden plants out of reach of voles. This habitat modification will eliminate them from being able to chew and gnaw on your plants' roots and leaves.
You can expect to see results within 5-7 days from the treatment date. We can apply another round of bait or repellant in the Fall to prevent these rodents from harboring in your lawn during the winter.
